In Vista. Screen saver won't run even though it seems to be set up
properly. Any suggestions?

Re: Screen Saver
Hi,

This is most frequently caused by software that doesn't allow the system to
time-out from inactivity. Frequent offenders include malware, P2P software,
and distributed computing projects. Basically what you will need to do is
isolate the problem by examining the background processes and disabling them
one at a time until the system will time-out properly.

If you have recently connected a wireless keyboard and/or mouse, you should
go to Windows Update and install the optional 'HID' update..
